About this Honolulu, Hawaii tour
Step back in time as the islands of Polynesia come alive at the Polynesian Cultural Center. As soon as you walk in, you'll see why this is one of Hawaii's top attractions. Explore representative villages from Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, and Hawaii, and meet the villagers that keep the culture alive. The canoe pageant is always a favorite as native dancers float down the water while performing cultural dances.
From there, head to the Dole Plantation where you can see how this roadside fruit stand became one of Oahu's most popular attractions. Ride the Pineapple Express, explore the Plantation Garden, and get lost in the Pineapple Garden Maze. Finish the visit with a snack of Dole's famous pineapple whip.
Your tour concludes with a visit to Oahu's iconic north shore. Stroll through the boutique art markets in Haleiwa, and then relax with a ride through Hawaii's rural countryside and past Oahu's world-famous surf beaches including Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach, and scenic lookouts like Laie Point.
The art of surfing was invented in Hawaii more than 1600 years ago. White missionaries tried to cleanse the natives of their culture – including surfing – and were almost successful. By 1900, only a few remaining surfers could be found. When Jack London brought an eccentric journalist to Oahu's surf beaches, the sport was introduced to the rest of the world, and began its slow climb back to Hawaii's favorite pastime.
